A small proportion of the cycle parking in Assen during the TT. This event brings over 100000 visitors to the city, where the usual population is just 65000. A large proportion of the visitors bring their bikes with them and like the locals they use them for access to the city centre in the evening to experience the live music on mulitple stages. The result is that tens of thousands of extra bikes have to be parked.

There is space for them all. That also goes for other large events here. Cycle parking is always quite generous.

The cars that you see in the very left most part of the photo are resident's cars for people who live on the right hand side. The road is a "bicycle road" on which drivers have to give way to cyclists, and which is a through road only for cyclists.

On the Google satelite images you see a car park on the left of this view. It is no longer there and has been replaced with an area for events such as this.
